Will William Shatner be in the upcoming "Star Trek" film? I have no idea, but the whole feud between him and director JJ Abrams has "viral marketing" written all over it.
First, Abrams announces that Leonard Nimoy will have a role in the new movie and maybe even some others from the original cast. But not William Shatner. He claims that it is difficult to bring a character back that has died. The entire time Shatner is releasing statements about how upset he is that he is not in the movie.
Then Abrams releases a new statement, stating that he offered Shatner a cameo, but Shatner turned it down. Watch the video below to see what Shatner has to say about that.
What do you guys think. Is this a marketing ploy and Shatner is actually in the movie, or is there an actual feud between the two men?

I love him more if he wouldn't confuse Crichton plot lines with reality. He seems like a cool guy, but what do I know. Doesn't seem like a feud as much as a miscommunication heightened by hope Shatner will in fact appear.
